Well it looks like my wife and I will be going to Kodiak at the begaining of august for about three nights. Since this is my first trip what and where should I be doing/going regarding fishing. Is there any place good to eat ot places to stay away from? Any good place to shoot at. Someone bring me up to speed.

IF you are going to be by here before then I have a couple cases that Kodi has stored here that he could use delivered.....

I might be in Soldotna this up coming week and would have no problem dropping off things for people.

Any good beer on the Island?

Good winery, but it is being closed (or may already be) due to zoning issues

when does deer season start?
Link Posted: 6/7/2008 12:36:25 PM EDT
Keep me posted on the actual dates you're coming in perhaps I could set aside some time hit the range or the river for some late sockeye or coho if they are in yet! Deer season starts the first of Aug I think..would have to check that...but if you're coming to Kodiak I'd be happy to help you out.
Know where your're staying yet? There is a Comfort Inn out by the airport or the Best Western in town ..(its better) or lots of B&B's.
Always willing to help out another arfcomer. Let me know.

+1 .

And as far as the winery it is for sale is all I know about it right now .


What days are you coming ?
After about mid July I will have no free time the rest of the year from what I have heard so far .

And Kodan has steered ya right on the hotel situation .

winery is closed I think. Wine wasnt that good actualy. We do have 2 wineries in Kodiak and the one that is still open I think was the best one. If you are into wine let me know...I can def hook you up there... I think Kodiak can vouch for me on that one.

Looks like it is all a go. I will be on the ferry in about two weeks heading to Kodiak. I trust the fishing is going to be good while I am down there. Anyone know of a good charter that charges a fair price for fishing?

Does anyone have anything that needs dropped off or picked up in Kodiak???? Let me know if I can help.
Link Posted: 7/16/2008 7:33:00 PM EDT
Oh man . If you can swing by Yekimaks house and pick up my two cases of 7.62x39mm I will be one happy bear .
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 2:36:10 AM EDT
I have eard nothing but praise for Happy Hooker Charters . I don't know his rates though .
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 10:27:26 AM EDT
Great! Make sure you let me buy you a beer or three while your here. How long are you actually going to be in Kodiak? Long enough for range time? Did I IM you my contact info? Kodiak-AK also knows how to reach me.
Rates for most Charter Boats are going to be between 200-400 a day depending on how long you want to stay out. But you will come home with fish !!!
Link Posted: 7/20/2008 12:37:55 AM EDT
Hey Kodan . I probbably have to bail on range time in the morning . 10 hours of ATV has me wasted out .


Bring your Deet bro the state bird is out in full force .

Kodi has this weird guilt over leaving me with this ammo for a year and I am taking advantage of it. I gracefully turned down his offer of his wife, mostly because I think he was trying to pawn her off on me so we settled on some followers. I was hoping for the minion type of follower, but am ending up with the magazine type of follower.

Sorry to hear that bud... thats not good. Are you taking anything for it ? GBSU's often have their good points though. What part of Shall Not Be Infringed doesnt she understand For penance say 3 second ammendments and buy some ammo.

Last summer I was in a very thick bear area on Afognak Island doing work for Ak State Parks with a woman that was very anti gun. When we ran into a Sow and two cubs on the trail at about 30 Ft I looked around to locate everyone and noticed she was standing directly behind me since I had the gun. I gave her the look of ....What the hell are you doing....she leaned forward and whispered in my ear...."Im getting a little more comfortable with the whole gun thing" After that she actually ask good questions about firearms and we had a constructive conversation.

Havent heard from Arcticbear yet....wonder where he is.

Kudos to AB for shooting in the liquid sunshine (rain) this morning Loved the SOCOM !! Was great to meet you and yours over dinner. Next time we'll have to schedule a day out on the boat. yeh ...everybody come back to Kodiak for a second visit.
Maybe next time Kodiak and I will come to Homer for a ammo raid!
Link Posted: 8/4/2008 11:02:12 PM EDT
Did I hear ammo raid .
Word dude I am up for it in a few months when I can take some time off .

It was a pleasure to meet you and your family AB , and thank you for the tips at the range today .

Now maybe I can hit a barn from the inside .


I have to admit I got a chuckle between all of us having an whoops moment at the range today .
Me being retarded enough to reach in front of a loaded rifle for a fresh mag , Kodan and his awsome reloads , and of course that rouge 9mm .


PS Kodan did any of your stuff rust up from today ?
I spent five hours going over everything tonight .
*sigh* .
WHY did I have to work right after the range .

Thats funny !! Barn from the inside !! And speaking of Oops .... you forgot to mention the the first damn shot AB touched off on your G3 sent a piece of freshly fired brass straight up which came down on the back of my neck promptly going down the back of my F'ing shirt And Kodiak laughs his ass off while Im doing the F'ing hot brass down the shirt Oweeee dance Hell ... you're both lucky I didnt just tear all my damn clothes off trying to find that brass !! Cause it was DEF headed south !!!

Nope ... didnt have a spec of rust on anything. Checked last night when I got home and again this morning. Nuthin Nada Nil ....No rust. Of course.... Tupperware doesnt rust ... Stainless doesnt rust much..... and I keep my M4 oiled like a Helo! soooo Im good! But thanks for the heads up!!
